Funcom wants you back in Age of Conan, and they want you back bad. As of today, they are offering a free two weeks of Age of Conan to returning players, with some rather special incentives for those who pony up cash for a renewed subscription. One month nets you a free week's worth of game time, which I suppose is nice, but not nearly as nice as the three months incentive. Re-subscribe to Age of Conan for 90 days and you get a beta slot in The Secret World, which is looking much more interesting than many MMO games out today, including Age of Conan.
But wait, there's more! Subscribe for six months and you get all of that, plus a 10% experience boosting helmet, and a year will get you the beta spot, the helmet, and the upcoming Age of Conan expansion, Rise of the Godslayer, completely free! All of this, plus double XP for everyone in the month of November.
A deperate move by a desperate company, or an outpouring of love for the fans that they've lost? Is beta access to The Secret World worth $40 or so? You be the judge.
